Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Attorney
Transvaginal mesh is implanted through the vagina into the pelvic region to correct organ
prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. These conditions are common after
menopause, childbirth, or a hysterectomy. When pelvic muscles become weak,
prolapse occurs and causes organs to sag into the vaginal canal. The mesh
acts as a hammock and raises drooping parts. Stress urinary incontinence
happens when the bladder leaks during times of heightened activity, especially
when pressure is placed on the area. A mesh sling supports the urethra
Unfortunately, not all mesh devices are safe and reliable. The design and
techniques used during surgery often contribute to dangerous complications.
It is not uncommon for a woman to experience infections, organ perforation,
or erosion of the vaginal tissues.
In 1996, the first transvaginal mesh products were FDA approved. The agency
explained these lightweight devices reduced the body’s inflammatory
response and reversed conditions caused by weak pelvic muscles. Transvaginal
mesh shares the design of products used to repair hernias. Manufacturers
began selling kits that were readily available in the medical community.
Due to the high volume sold, there have been many incidents of complications.
